Many teenage girls see a designer prom dress online or in a magazine

Now let’s talk about what styles of designer prom dresses suit each of these body shapes.

A-line or Empire dresses look beautiful on a Pear. With an A-line dress the skirt is A-shaped and flares out from a natural or dropped waist. An Empire dress is one in which there is not a defined waist; instead the skirt begins right under the seam of the bust and falls away to the. These styles work because they emphasize the smaller bust area but de-emphasize large hips.

For those with a Triangular figure or an Hourglass figure with a large bust, sweetheart necklines might be best avoided, as emphasizing the bust can result in a Dolly Partonesque look, which can make many feel self conscious resulting in a loss of confidence. Instead, a V-neck can draw attention from a large bust as it guides the eye inwards and down the midline of the dress.

The Hourglass figure can look great in most gown styles. A Column style has sleek modern lines and is usually quite figure-hugging. For those that want to emphasize more of their body’s natural curves, a Mermaid or Fishtail is an excellent choice. These styles are often cut on the bias and hug the figure before flaring out at the knee. A Fishtail dress is usually flatter at the front than the Mermaid but flares at the back and sides.

The Willow shape can look divine in a figure hugging dress such as the Column. This dress style also looks just as good for petite or tall women. For those that are slightly self conscious about tight dresses, choose an A-line dress instead. It may also surprise a Willow shaped women that a strapless dress can make them look stunning – even for women with smaller busts.

There’s no doubt tha
